      Works well

      The Boots Mini Lens Cleaning Pen is something we have used with a variety of cameras and mobile phones. The cleaning pen is easy to use and although not particularly cheap to buy it does work reasonably well for a time.

      You can buy a choice of 2 of these cleaning pens with either the Boots Mini Lens Cleaning Pen which is useful to clean smaller lenses or areas on your camera being £7.99 or the general use pen being £4.99.

      When you buy your Boots Mini Lens Cleaning Pen it comes packed into a simple plastic fronted pack which seals it safely prior to use. Once out of the pack you end up with what looks like a simple pen type instrument. It has an easy to retract cleaning brush head and a cleaning tip head, that you can use to get into all sorts of small and hard to reach nooks and crannies on your camera if you want to.

      The fact that it has this small brush allows for easier use and enables you to get into tiny areas that other cleaning methods may miss. You don't need to use any additional cleaning fluid with the pen tip either and can use the same pen tip for up to 500 mini cleans according to the info on the pack.

      I have to say that we did find that our pen tip lasted a little less than this, but in spite of this I still feel that the pen was very handy and useful to have around the home. We didn't just use it with digital and 35mm camera lenses, we also used it with mobile phone camera lenses which are something that very often go rather uncared for.

      In all cases the pen was easy to use and simple to store away when finished with. The pens brush is small and light enough to also be used to help clean small LCD screens before using the cleaning tip if need be. We used it in this way to clean our mobile phone screens at times. I feel it did a reasonable enough job with them. Again mobile screens do take a battering and can benefit from a bit of light sprucing up and this did work with those.

      We found the Boots Mini Lens Cleaning Pen was able to deal with most marks, smudges and stains to a reasonable level. The cleaning tip needs to be covered to protect it when not in use and when you want to use it you just need to give the cap a small turn to ensure that it has enough new cleaning fluid to do the job.

      To give the product a rating I feel it ought to get 4 stars as we found we could use it with good effect. The price is a bit off putting and I would have liked to have seen it a lot cheaper. Other than that I would recommend the cleaning pen as a small and easily portable cleaning system.
